WHO SHOULD ATTEND This short course is designed for junior to mid-senior level reservoir engineers who want to “fast track” in reservoir simulation by a comprehensive overview of the key topics and practical aspects.
COURSE OBJECTIVES the numerical physics of reservoir simulation. the data requirements for conducting a study. the current practice in using coarse and finely gridded models to incorporate heterogeneity. the simulation study approach which leads to a quality result. the different types of models available, i.e. compositional, dual porosity, etc.
COURSE DESCRIPTION This training course will provide a comprehensive coverage of the simulation key topics, challenges, pitfalls and the approach to a quality result. The participants will be trained in the methods and use of simulation software for practical exercises throughout this course.
